After recently I posted a pic of Kim Kardashian on my Instagram, a lot of you asked me to write more about celebs who are endomorph body type. So I listened and decided to write about the gorgeous Sofia Vergara.
This woman has accomplished so much in her life as an actor, producer, and model. She’s inspiring, funny, and she works hard. On top of all that, she’s beautiful and has a gorgeous figure!
Here’s how she keeps her body healthy and in great shape:
When Sofia was just 28 years old, she developed thyroid cancer and ended up having to have her thyroid removed.
Now, she deals with hypothyroidism, a condition in which you don’t receive enough thyroid hormone in your blood.
Sofia is now a spokeswoman for the campaign “Follow the Script,”, which educates people about hypothyroidism. I’ve struggled with an underactive thyroid for years. I know how
Since posting about my experience with underactive thyroid on my social media and blog,
Although Sofia recognizes that maintaining a healthy and good-looking body is important for her job, she also knows that staying fit is important for her entire wellbeing. Her experience with cancer has helped her to not worry about the small stuff. Instead, she wants to focus on the big picture of her health and happiness.
For Sophia, maintaining a healthy diet is really important for her overall health and wellbeing, especially because of her hypothyroidism.
This means that Sofia follows a disciplined, but not an overly strict, diet. Her trainer, Gunnar Peterson, recommends that she eats lots of vegetables and lean protein. She tries to eat really healthy over week, and she lets herself relax a little bit more during the weekend.
Although Sofia does have a sweet tooth (her favourite treat is cake!), she tries to eat healthy most of the time. She loves eating fish, fresh salads, and Middle Eastern food.
If she spends a couple of weeks on holiday indulging in more junk food and alcohol than normal, she likes to spend a month eating extra clean to help her body recover.
During awards seasons, Sofia avoids carbs, especially late at night. She tries to cut out things like bread, rice, oatmeal, and potatoes, as well as salty foods.
Salty foods help your body retain water, which can make you look bloated and puffy.
Sofia is endomorph body type! This means that she’S naturally curvier (love!), and she can probably gain muscle and fat pretty quickly. Endomorphs typically have a lot of strength and endurance, but it can be hard for them to lose weight.
I always suggest that endomorphs keep their carbohydrate content relatively low, which is what Sofia seems to do too. Instead, she eats a lot of protein, which is great for endomorphs.
Sofia has managed to keep her curvy body looking slim and toned, and her healthy diet plays a big role in that. She obviously knows how to eat for her body type and it shows! :)
For breakfast, Sofia likes to make homemade muesli. She mixes it with Greek yogurt, oats, chia seeds, nuts, and blueberries. Yum!
For lunch, Sofia loves a good salad with some fish as protein to top it off.
If Sofia is going out for dinner, she loves to opt for a lighter meal like sushi or Middle Eastern food. However, Sofia isn’t afraid to have the occasional pizza, bowl of pasta, or steak either!
Sofia’s favourite spot for dinner is LA’s Soho House. There, she might order the bowl of Ahi tuna poke, avocado, cucumber,
On Instagram, Sofia has shared she likes to eat fruit with a light pastry and a cup of tea as a mid-day snack.
Sofia works out with two trainers: Jennifer Yates, founder of LA’s Studio Metamorphosis, and Gunnar Peterson, who has also trained Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner
According to Jennifer, Sofia will hit the gym at least five times a week if her work schedule allows it. Each time she goes, she tries to get in at least 50 minutes to an hour of work.
This might make it seem like she LOVES to work out, but Sofia actually says it is torture for her. She loves to try to think of excuses to avoid going to the gym, but she’s always glad when she’s done!
Sofia isn’t a big fan of running. She prefers to get her cardio in with a quick 15 minutes on the bike or by walking on the treadmill with an incline of six to eight percent.
Sofia likes having a bit more muscle in her lower body and walking on an incline is great for building muscle in your quads and booty! But if you don’t want to build your leg muscles, I would recommend walking on a flat surface instead. :)
Sofia likes to make sure that her cardio makes her slightly out of breath, but she doesn’t want to go fast enough to break into a jog.
Wither Gunnar, Sofia really tries to focus on emphasizing her small waistline and hourglass shape. They focus on making sure her butt looks perfectly round and her thighs are shapely through a variety of squats, hip thrusts, lunges, and so on.
To balance this out, they’ll also do some shoulder work. Here are some of the moves that they do:
Sofia will also go to some Pilates classes. There, she focuses on keeping her body looking lean and toned without sacrificing her curves.
Jennifer Yates shared this sample workout with Sofia’s favourite exercises.
You’ll need gliding discs (hand towels will also work!), a light dumbbell, and a resistance band.
Do this routine at least twice through for a 30-minute workout.
However, if you bulk up easily in your lower body (some female body types do) and that’s something you’d don’t want, I would recommend avoiding exercises that heavily target your quads (squats, lunges, etc.)
Learning more about Sofia’s health journey has made me admire her even more. I love the way she prioritizes her well-being. She eats well (and makes sure to enjoy her food too!), and she also exercises because she knows it is good for her.
Over the years, Sofia has figured out how to do what works for her body, her interests, and her schedule. She does what is best for her health, and I admire that!
